    Hi everyone

    I have been waiting (and saving money) for a long long time to buy for the first time in my life a high-end video card. (PLEASE don't say a gtx 680 or a 7970 is more than enough....etc. I don't want SLI or Crossfire, THANKS).

    Now the Geforce GTX Titan is out (expensive I know). Reading a lot of reviews on the net didn't help me so much to decide to order one. Different conclusions/opinions especially about performance/price wise.

    It has the same price as GTX 690 (which is faster than Titan), but it is a dual GPU card and I've heard there are a lot of problems with multi-GPU cards/systems in many games.

    Anyone can tell if I should wait a little more for the next generation NVidia/Amd video cards, which we'll not see before Q4 2013, or just jump on one of these Titan SINGLE GPU monsters?

    Thanks

    The GTX Titan is a load of rubbish the price/performance ratio is terrible and as you already know there is nothing new about it. Wait for the next generation of products.

    As I stated in the first post, I don't want SLI/Crossfire or Dual GPU cards due to problems with drivers/heat/place/Consumption/lags/crashes....etc . People have a lot of problems with these systems in many games. I Want a powerful SINGLE GPU card. But maybe GTX Titan is not the right choice as R29K stated earlier
